Shushan Postmaster streamer with Jungle cock eyes... Creator: Lew Oatman of Shushan NY 1953 Lew and his fishing buddy “Al Prindle” (the Shushan Postmaster) used this fly to imitate little Brown Trout on the Battenkill. This fly is a great pattern and is one of my favorite guide flies.
Spirit of Pittsford Mills Dryfly Creator: Stephen P Belcher 1930’s This is one of the very few flies exclusively from Vermont. In 1955 while visiting, President Dwight D. Eisenhauer, a dryfly fisherman used this fly on Furance Brook in Pittsford, Vt. Later, Elsie Darbee, another fan of the pattern submitted her version to be published in the “Mc Clane’s Fishing Encyclopedia”. When tied true to recipe this fly floats like a cork in fast water.

My fly box from this last fall

Some time this winter I will switch out some of the fall (specific) flies and plug in spring stuff....
